Description:

It is time again to celebrate the winter solstice, the time when the days will again start to lengthen in the Northern Hemisphere as we turn the wheel onward toward Imbolc. It is a time for celebrating the pending return of the light and to keep the darkness at bay.

Come whitness the birth of the Oak King and the battle between the Holly King and the Oak King for the end of the long nights and the return of the sun.

There will be feasting, celebrating, and socializing before and after the Ritual.

The event is free! However, donations are gratefully accepted to offset expenses. We ask everyone to bring food or drink to share. Suggested food items include finger foods, cheese and crackers, chips and dip, soda, punch, pies, cakes, or another type of dessert.

Food will be potluck, so please go to http://www.PaganAllianceChurch.org and let everyone know what you are bringing.
